    We had a wonderful experience, great food, service and did I say great food and service? We were able to give the waiter a price point, tell him what we do and do not like and the chef created our dishes based on that! It was amazing. Literally, the only thing I would have changed was the music was a little loud, but we were located just under a speaker so I couldn’t be mad about it. I’m sure we could have gone to a more quiet table if asked.

    If you like fish, definitely get the Miso-Marinated Black Cod (my order), or yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno (my friend's order)! I appreciated our waiter's recommendations, but did find the service slow. I tried uni sushi here for the first time, and only wish that was more memorable. The ambiance is a bit dark (dinner), but the clientle made up for it with their posh looks. Not sure if I'll return, but find it interesting it's a KUWTK favourite (albeit that's the Malibu location).

    Very disappointing. Service was terrible, took 40 mins to seat us after our reservation time, and empty tables everywhere. Hot dishes came cold, we ordered sashimi soon after we were seated, only for it to arrive 20 minutes after we finished our hot dishes that were ordered 30 minutes after the sashimi. It was obvious it was sitting at sushi coutner for some time. The waygu nigiri pieces were crusted over and hard from sitting out. For $1000, it was perhaps one of the most disappointing experiences.

    Nobu delivers - waiters - food - drink is perfection. Where there is an epic fail is with the valet parking. Words can’t explain the mess. We waited over 30 minutes and I finally grabbed my own key and walked around the block looking for the car. These were at least 10 people waiting for the same or longer. There was a line of 8 cars that couldn’t park. It was pathetic

    The Waygu dumplings, black cod lettuce wraps were absolute stand outs. The spicy tuna roll was a little bland and the crispy rice and tuna was better the time before last. I felt like the rice seemed a little old or something because it was sticking to our teeth like rock candy. Overall great experience and great energy.

    We celebrated a birthday. I wasn’t crazy about my original seat but the team re- seated us with no issue. Sushi is so fresh. Wagyu dumplings and lobster tacos were our favorites, but everything was delicious and the service was friendly and top notch. Will definitely visit again!
